Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Question(s) about Radio City 10/80

I have bits and pieces of Dead Ahead recorded from PBS and other places and I would like to find some concise preformance info on the "Dead Ahead' release. I've watched and like it. Is this a commplete show? Or, is this a "highlights reel" of the run over those 2 weeks,(or whatever it was).
I recently completed the gd80-10-31.dvdf 4 disc torrent. I reconize the monkey and Engineer exchange from Reckoning , or was it the Dead Ahead video, this is where I'm confusing the two. I also read where the Fire on the Mountian was editted and used on "Dead Set".
My main question is How much did I duplicate from Dead Ahead buy putting resources into this 10-31.
Last Question, Is there a concenus on a favorite show from that run? Or is it more a case of "this nights acoustic is fine but not so much the electric" (or vice-versa).

The entire 10/31/80 show was shown in theatres at the time. It's enough live Grateful Dead to fit on 4 DVDs. It used to circulate on http://www.tobasai.com/shn.htm until some fascist corporation bought the servers and banned all of the music and videos. It would be like Comcast buying your cable company and then being assholes about the customers downloading torrents.

"It would be like Comcast buying your cable company and then being assholes about the customers downloading torrents".

Time Warner has been known to take that page from the playbook also, I have a feelin that torrent downloading days are numbered after all these court cases get settled.

I mentioned in an earlier post about using dvd shrink on it , I don't possibly know what I was thinking, It couldn't be done w/ that file(s) must of had it confused with something else ( a Little Feat show I'm working with).

I love the whole show (10-31-80) , I think the Brown-eyed Women is my favorite musical part , but I love it all, what a great score. Columbus,Ohio back in the day had the "World Theater" and would put this ,and other great musical treats that you just don't see theaters doing anymore. 1.e Quaraphenia and other stuff like that.

I'm sitting here slack-jawed now after having watched the 1st set of 10-31-90 Wembley , the Help-slip- franlins blew my mind into little peices. It was obvious that garcia was having equipment issues, but at one point after playing one handed and fiddling w/ his rig with the other hand just wheels around an unleashes god's graces on the crowd, i think the phrase I'm looking for "I shit gold brick" over that little exchange., I'm hoping to get some time to watch it beginning to end. God Bless the tapers !

I downloaded that vcd too. Most of Dead ahead is from 10-31-80, the vcd I believe is the full 10-31-80 show

I was hoping the footage was unique from Dead Ahead release, My first reaction to seeing the torrent was " far out 1 I didn't know they filmed other nights from that run", but not to be, It's cool though, I much prefer the entire show , than the editted release.

well it is unique in that there are a bunch of songs not on the release. Also there's more Franken and Davis bits that didnt make it on the release like the Jerry's kids bit that is pretty funny.

btw - anyonme seen that Belushi/Steve Parish SNL skit that Parish mentions in his book? Apparently he wouldn't let Franken and Davis on stage ( I guess they were friends with Candace Brightman )so they decided to get back at him

Tom Davis mentioned the same skit in his recent memoir ( a great read) , and really puts alot of this(10-31-80) in perspective. Parrish and Davis had quite a row that nite.
Your correct about it being unique in the sense that it has so much more than the Dead Ahead release, The only regret I have now is I wanted it burnt so badly that I forgot to use dvd shrink to make it 2 disc instead of 4 like the uploader suggested. LOL, it's ALL good.

1980-10-10 is widely regarded as the best

1980-10-14 is not far behind. Good 1980 Dew.

http://www.archive.org/details/gd1980-10-10.mtx.chappell.sb03.28740.flac16

And I'd give the post-drums sequence from this one a listen

If it's just the acoustic set you are after, go with this pristine recording

http://www.archive.org/details/gd80-10-09.sbd.unknown.11042.sbeok.shnf


Other than that, I suggest you go for the standard shows before and after the split acoustic ones. There you will find some outstanding music, much better than the Radio City or Warfield stuff.

I listened to this show. Is it me or is the transition from that very cool Black Peter to Around and Around, very jarring?
